Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Abstract

The occurrence of a stroke brings about an abrupt change in the life situation for the individual and immediate family members. The physical impairments and emotional responses that follow a stroke have profound effects that impact everyday living, interpersonal relationships, intimacy, and sexuality. Numerous studies have shown that individuals report a marked decline in sexual function after a stroke. The focus of this study is on the pathophysiological and emotional factors that contribute to this decline and how these factors are evaluated and managed by health professionals during the phase of early poststroke rehabilitation.
